Settling into work today and in the mood for a mellower show to really ease me back into things here. Didn't really want a seething cave beast to flatten me right out of the gate, figure I'd save that for Friday. Instead I reached for 5/28/77, an excellent little show from the spring run of the much discussed year. While not a typical 77 monster that just blows you away, it is instead a quieter display of a band so comfortable in its own skin that it doesn't feel the need to "turn it up to 11" every night, but can also ratchet it down and set up some sweet grooves that hypnotize you and render you weightless for 3 hours. The Estimated>Playin>Terrapin is so pretty it hurts. Not extraordinarily long, it still shows just what Jerry and the Boys (and girl) could do when they are happy to just sit back and let the music do the talking. Sweet stuff here from a leg of the tour that has the majority of attention given to shows like the Mosque (and rightfully so, I will say). I can already feel my pulse slow and my brain getting ready to take on the day.

(sorry, I had to change "rend" to "render", didn't want folks to think that the show was capable of removing limbs)

That's really funny, my former roommate just told me about this show over the weekend. Love that Sugaree. And here I was thinkin' I'd seen all that May '77 had to offer. Silly me.

I'm not so much easing as I am jarring myself into my studies today with 10/9/82, which has an impossibly slinky West LA Fadeaway. And the second set is fantastically delicious and good for your head.

You, sir, are a cover-spewing freak. I like it.
